's-Hertogenbosch: a leading innovator
As a city of data, this city is in full motion! Even with bikes! 's-Hertogenbosch shows its innovative and sustainable character with two special applications for cyclists that were created in cooperation with the local business community. The apps bring cyclists to their destinations faster and safer by, for example, warning them of difficult situations. A unique feature is the Schwungapp, which allows traffic lights to 'see' cyclists approaching, allowing the light to go green. In this way, the municipality stimulates (safe) cycling in the sustainable mobility policy of 's-Hertogenbosch.
